Ocean Beach is known for their beachy vibe, laid back attitude, and beautiful beaches. Adding to it’s list of attributes is OB Warehouse, a new funky bar and eatery located in the heart of OB on Newport Avenue. Obsessed with all things San Diego, we had the opportunity to visit the grand openning of this swanky spot and see what it is all about. Let us break down for you the highlights of our night:
1. Delicious Food
Trays full of decadent food were generously passed around by extremely friendly servers. The Mushroom Flatbread had a perfect sauce to bread ratio, and the lightly fried Artichoke Hearts were paired with a creamy sauce with a hint of citrus. Can OB Warehouse pass these trays around my condo every night? Yum!
2. Pleasant Aesthetics
Adorning the walls were vintage mirrors and large chalkboards covered with specials. The lighting was dim, and there was an industrial-chic vibe throughout the architecture. Simply put, it is clear that OB Warehouse did not leave out any details during the design process.

3. One-of-a-Kind Drinks
Upon arriving at OB Warehouse, I made a B-line directly to the bar. What caught my eye first was the Handtruck – a delicious cocktail with gin, basil syrup, and a fresh basil leaf. I’d be lying if I told you I didn’t down both of my drinks within a short amount of time. With a refreshing Fall taste, the house made Apple Cider was another hit.
4. Exceptional Service
Grand Openning events can be a nightmare, but I was pleasantly surprised with the smooth service that the bartenders and servers provided. It took no time to grab my cocktails from the bar, and Sous Chefs were cruising around asking if there was anything else we needed.
5. Fabulous Location
Located in the heart of Ocean Beach, OB Warehouse is an arms reach from the ocean. Parking can be a nightmare, especially during busy hours. I was happy to find a pay per hour parking lot right next to the venue – and for only $3 an hour, it was a nice comprimise to driving around for 20 minutes only to find a spot 5 blocks away.
